Abstracts will be reviewed and accepted by the Organizing Committee

By 10th August 2012 submitters will receive notification e-mails from the HAB 2012
Secretariat regarding the acceptance of their abstracts (oral or poster presentations). The
Organizing Committee and the Session conveners will accommodate authors’ preferences for
oral or poster presentations, depending on oral times ot availability and the structure of the
thematic sessions. Some of the abstracts might be moved to the Poster Session. Conversely
some poster presentations might be invited to make it oral. Session conveners reserve the
right to reject submitted abstracts that are poorly written, do not follow the submission
guidelines and/or are beyond the scope of the conference. Abstracts are only accepted from
presenting authors who have sent in the registration forms and who have paid the appropriate
registration fees. Exempted are authors who have applied for an ISSHA Travel Grant or have
been in contact with us beforehand (hgkim@nfrdi.go.kr).

      First Approach To An Okadaic Acid Amperometric Immunosensor:
                   Application To Environmental Samples

In Eastern Mediterranean and more specifically in Thermaikos Gulf (Greece), most
toxin outbreaks come from the okadaic acid (OA) producer Dinophysis acuminata.
For this work, the benthic dinoflagellate Prorocentrum lima was used, which is also
producing DSP toxins.Cultures of P. lima were grown for a period of 69 days under
regular nutrient conditions. Samples collected at weekly or even less time intervals for
OA and DTX1 detection, both from the filters and the filtrate.
OA and its analogue (DTX1) are among the most widely occurring HAB toxin groups
worldwide. Their detection is mainly through HPLC, which is an inappropriate
procedure for screening or on-site testing, as it is not sensitive enough for
environmental samples. Therefore, for their detection, an amperometric sensor using
screen-printed electrodes has been coupled with antibodies that have been previously
tested with an immunoassay procedure. For the development of the sensor the
antibodies were primarily tested in ELISA and then were transferred to amperometric
electrodes. In parallel, samples from the laboratory cultures were quantified using
LC/MS. Finally, the amperometric sensor has demonstrated a simplistic way for OA
and DTX1 determination with sensitivity comparable to already existing techniques
and a potential use of the biosensor in situ.
